Children with special needs in Cornwall get more help.
The Duchy is in line for nearly half a million pounds from the government.
It is to put in place plans to give families more of a say in care.
It will also help set up a new birth to 25 system.
The government has published a new easier-to-read Code of Practice, which offers advice for councils, schools and hospitals to make sure they are providing the support for children and young people.
Studies found that the majority of parents piloting the new system felt more empowered and were happier with the services they were receiving.2:51pm 13th June 2014
